I BOUGHT 124,000 FEET OF BRAND 
NEW FILM IN ONE DAY LAST WEEK 


(THINK OF IT! OVER 23 MILES OF FRESH NEW STUFF!) 

One big hunk from Pathe!—another from Melies! — 
another from the Vitagraphl—and smaller lots from 
other standard makers! 

all goes into my regular service immediately and I’m 
not going to charge anybody extra for “first run.” My 
old and my new customers will share and share alike, and 
there’s going to be a raft of tick!ed=to=pieces managers when 
this new stuff reaches ’em. This shows you what I think of 
the moving picture business—it proves what I said months 
ago, namely, that all the “panics” in the world can’t hurt the 
film business when it’s handled rightl Telegraph me now!

YOU— 

Needed a Doctor, it isn’t at all likely that you would trust your case with 
one who had only been at the game for a year—you would certainly go 
to an older man. When it comes to FILMS, go to the old firms. 
They have the Largest Stock, the Best Goods, and more Experience. 

Q The INTER-OCEAN FILM EXCHANGE is one of the old firms. 
Don’t be misled by fine talk and catch phrases—they probably will not 
get you any better Films. The little concerns are obliged to make a 
noise like a circus band, otherwise they would not attract any attention.
